This country needs to stop this practice of selling our prisons, or letting these "for profit" companies run them.
They are not capable of doing the job of hired professional corrections officers.
How many inmates have to be seriously injured before we put these companies out of business???

Who cares? They're prisoners--not hotel guests. One of the problems in our country is that our prisons are not to be feared, so people don't consider prison a deterrent to crime.

The United States has the highest percentage of their population locked up in prison. If prison was like the old movie Cool Hand Luke, we would probably see a decrease in prison population.
